In the Evil Day

LoveReading View on In the Evil Day

We loved The Broken shore  and Peter Temple has come up with another cracking crime novel.  Another brilliant plot with bags of violence, death and dirty secrets.  He's been up for a few literary prizes this year and is well worth discovering.

In the Evil Day Synopsis

Con Niemand is a mercenary whose business is surviving. John Anselm is a struggling intelligence agent whose business is information. Caroline Wishart is a tabloid journalist whose business, until now, has been the sex lives of politicians. Their paths collide when Niemand stumbles across a secret terrible enough to destroy lives and depose governments.

 

Against his will, Anselm is plunged into a world of violence, betrayal and death. He must break out of his anesthetized life and pit himself against forces that he does not understand, forces determined to rebury an atrocity that threatens reputations and lives across the globe, while Niemand is hunted across two continents by people he doesn’t know.

 

Cleverly plotted and peppered with dark irony and lean prose, In the Evil Day conjours a world where information is more dangerous than explosives and secrets are worth more than human life.
